Poem 51 – Something Happened to the Trees

Standard

“Something Happened to the Trees” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Something happened

To the trees

It started with

A chilly breeze

That blew in

Welcoming the fall

‘Til there were no leaves

Left at all

Day 44 – “If You Were a Tree”

Standard

“If You Were a Tree” by Jaymie Gerard

 

If you were a tree

If you were a tree

What kind of tree

Would you be?

 

An Adler, an Ash, an Apple, a Beech?

A Birch, Boxelder, maybe a Buckwheat?

 

A Cedar, a Cherry?

A Chinaberry?

 

Crabapple, an Elm, or a Fir?

A Hickory, Hemlock, or Juniper?

 

Magnolia, Maple?

An Oak? A Palm?

A Peach? A Pear?

A Pine? A Plum?

 

A Poplar? A Redbud?

A Giant Redwood?

 

Sassafras? Sumac?

Sycamore? Spruce?

Walnut? Willow?

Which would you choose?

 

If you were a tree

If you were a tree

What kind of tree

Would you be?
